SCOTUS Rules For Hobby Lobby On Contraception Mandate
Closely held companies with religious objections -- like Hobby Lobby-- cannot be forced to offer certain types of birth control coverage under President Obama's health care law.
In a 5-to-4 decision today, the US Supreme Court ruled that some for-profit corporations have religious rights.
The high court considered appeals from the arts-and-crafts giant and a Pennsylvania cabinet maker.
Both companies argued the mandate went against their religious beliefs and opposition to abortion.
Today's decision came two years after justices allowed the health care law's "individual mandate" to go into effect.
Opponents fear the decision in favor of Hobby Lobby could lead to other healthcare challenges on religion grounds.
